The Marshall County boys golf team spent a rainy Saturday in Bowling Green, competing in the Bowling Green Invitational with 15 other teams, eight of which were unable to complete the full 18 holes due to the heavy showers.
Heading into the tournament, the Marshals were tied for third in the All State points ranking. The Marshals completed all 18 holes of the par 72 Bowling Green Country Club course with a 304 team score for third place.
Coach Keith Bell stated that they were “very happy to be playing a competitive round of golf on this course since this is the site where the KHSAA State Championship will be held” on Oct. 5 -7.
Jay Nimmo carded a 2-under 70, finishing in a tie for third. Trey Wall ended with a 2-over 74 and Camdyn McLeod had a 3-over 75. David Jack Morris and Preston Futrell rounded out the team with an 85 and an 86, respectively.
“David Jack Morris was playing this course for the first time in his career,” Bell said. “He showed several times his ability to put together some par runs during the round. Futrell had a good start after the first hole with four consecutive pars.”
This Marshals are gearing up for the KGCA All State Championship at the UK Club in Lexington. The two-day tournament represents the “toughest field of high school golf teams and players from all over the state of Kentucky,” according to Bell.
“We are excited to play the best teams in the state and see where we stack up,” he said.
